Price action analysis ahead of major labor report: Brooks

Brooks Price Action Analysis of Thursday, Sept. 6

pending chart 2304

Trend from the first bar bull, final flag top, higher low major trend reversal, lower high major trend reversal, trading range day

  • Thursday, September 5, 2013
  • Bar 1 - Yesterday ended always in long. Outside up bar, fail, failure two legged pullback in a bear move, ok swing buy or long
  • Bar 2 - Breakout, more up, but possible final flag = yesterday trading range. Small so not strong. Yesterday trading range = possible final flag
  • Bar 3 - Doji inside bar, more up to measured move, but weak so probably bull leg in trading range
  • Bar 6 - Two inside bars but 6 bars without pullback so low probability sell or short above or below and probably buyers at the low of week of the bar and probably scaling in lower
  • Bar 8 - Outside bar surrounded by inside bars two legged pullback in a bull move, but tight trading range no scalping with stops.
  • Bar 10 - Final flag second entry sell but bull body so swing or wait
  • Bar 12 - Possible triangle 4 7. Breakout mode
  • Bar 13 - Big bear bar, probably more down. Stop above 13
  • Bar 14 - H27, fail, failure breakout, but not strong enough to reverse 13 so low probability buy or long. Bar follow through for bears so more trading range likely
  • Bar 15 - Breakout pullback sell or short but doji. Trading range day. Swing sell or short or wait
  • Bar 16 - Micro double bottom but bear bar, tight trading range. Wait
